Default Sansa Playlister and Rockbox

I've used the little program to make playlists with the old school firmware with the sansa and that worked like a champ but, yesterday I made the leap to Rockbox, which I really like, but, I don't see any playlists to choose from in the Rockbox playlist browser. I even tried changing the file to an m3u file but, Rockbox didn't like that at all.

How can I use Playlister and Rockbox???

thanks for any help

Use any program that generates m3u files. I believe most, if not all, mp3 players/music managers generate them. No need to use any Sansa specific programs, as they do not generate m3u files...

Like he said - most music managers work. You actually want M3U8, which is unicode (i think?) M3U playlists.

You can make them on-the-go in rockbox. Just play a song, then find the next song, but instead of playing it, go to the context menu (down) and select playlist then insert. You can save the current playlist on the WPS context menu.

That almost works for me, but the problem is while the player recognizes the m3u playlist, if I select a song, nothing happens.

Yes, m3u8 is just an m3u with utf8 encoding.

How did you create the playlist? How did you try to play it?

I created it in Winamp then right-click - send to - Sansa. I tried to play it by selecting the playlist in the Playlist menu on the Sansa. I can see the songs in the playlist but when I select the song nothing happens.

Thanks.

Just thought I'd mention this in case you might have a large collection of playlists made for the original firmware.
I've made a small app that will convert all of the original plp type playlist on your Sansa to m3u8 format for Rockbox.
If interested you can download it here:
